Bell Miner colony monitoring

The Problem

I want to get the general public involved in monitoring colonies of Bell Miners throughout their range. This is a species that has been blamed for eucalypt dieback but little is known about the relationship between them and their ecosystem. Most of the research only looks at the association between this species and dieback but we don't know why Bell Miners choose their habitat.

Our Plan

Monitoring Bell Miner colonies over time will allow us to monitor their movements and determine exactly why they move into certain areas. I want to create a citizen science project by getting many people in society involved as there are already people interested in providing me with information. I am making networks with people in National Parks, the Bell Miner Associated Dieback Working Group, Forestry NSW, the Office of Environment and Heritage and various Universities.
